Private Flights

What is a private flight? A private flight is when one party flies on a helicopter at a time. For a completely private flight experience, guests can choose to purchase all the seats on any tour or may book a custom private charter. Guests who purchase only a single seat on a tour may be seated with other passengers outside of their party.

Monitoring Symptoms

If you are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms before you fly (dry cough/ fever/abnormal fatigue), please notify us immediately before you go to our base of operations. Any guests or staff who are not feeling well are required to stay home. If you are exhibiting symptoms upon check-in, you will be asked to postpone your flight. Staff may ask to check your temperature to ensure you are not exhibiting symptoms. For the safety of our staff, we reserve the right to refuse service to any guest we feel is exhibiting symptoms. In addition, all pilots receive routine screening for COVID-19.

Cleaning & Sanitization

Hand sanitizer is provided to all staff and guests. Employees are required to wash their hands regularly. Sanitization via spray, wipe or fogger are used in all aircraft prior to boarding. Seatbelts, headsets and all high-touch areas in the aircraft and at our bases are sanitized between flights.
